Pop Culture Odds and Ends – The Plague Edition

Apparently a plague has settled in to my office, as pretty much everyone on staff has some degree of sickness. In an ideal world, everyone would get to stay home when they aren’t feeling 100%, but unfortunately that’s not the world we’re living in so the echoes of hacking coughs permeate my building. I don’t know if cough drops count as a food group, but I’ve pretty much been sustaining myself on them for most of this week. I started drinking hot toddys over the weekend which didn’t do much to prevent me from getting sick, but certainly diminished how much I cared about it.

So while I get IDed for the hundredth time buying cold medicine, get yourself caught up on the pop culture that you might have missed with this week’s roundup.

Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Guess Who’s Back, Back Again

Well friends, I had a hell of a week last week. Not only was work bonkers, but I also had a death in the family which obviously kind of upended my week. This week isn’t shaping up to be a lot better, frankly, but it’s time to get back on the blogging horse before y’all forget about me completely.

So while I try to get life in general sorted out, get yourself caught up on this slightly supersized edition of the pop culture roundup. There’s a little bit of something for everyone.

Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Spring Cleaning Edition

It’s not technically summer yet, despite the very warm weather we’re experiencing, so my recent spring cleaning binge is still in season. Lately I’ve been obsessed with instilling order to my office, so I’ve been spending my free time scanning files, moving furniture around, and generally fixating on minimizing clutter. I’m not sure what has kickstarted this, other than it may be a manifestation of stress. I’m controlling what I can by trying to instill order where I can. Sadly this spring cleaning bug has not applied to my apartment, which continues to look like my college sorority house after a party. I don’t understand why this dichotomy exists, but it does. I dunno – maybe it’s something to discuss with my therapist.

Lucky for you, my focus on organization and order applies to the pop culture roundup as well, so it’s easy for you to catch up on the various news that you may have missed.So while I spend my lunch hour dusting my desk (seriously), bring yourself up to speed on the week in pop.
